Where is my broadband?????

Aggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! Day  5 of the worst internet connection speed ever. Have just done another test - upload speed of 0.05mbps and download of 0.24mbps. It's so maddening!!!! ISP don't seem to know (or care) what the problem is - last phone call went on for 23 minutes (and of course at OUR expense).
So just a quick share cos I really can't be bothered waiting while it tries to upload!

The colour of this card rather reflects my mood..... BLUE!!!!! LOL

Have no idea why the bit of bling ('Waterfall' colour Stickles) on the frilly sleeves and on the band of the hat is showing green - in real life it's blue too!

Have you noticed that all things that go wrong with broadband are the fault of us or our computers, or we are trying to run programs they do not support? Most of the operators tell us to do things we have already done, and then tell us that we need to take our computer to an expensive computer technician who will sort it out for us (at an exorbitant price). I do have broadband this week, but not through my normal machine, due to that one losing its network card. Hope yours soon returns to normal. Suggest to them that if they do not sort it out NOW, they should give you a rebate of a month's payment. I bet it works pretty fast after that.
